PIONER GROUP is a manufacturer of dry mix for the lightweight concrete. The lightweight concrete dry mix used instead of rock wool and glass wool to achieve solid and monolithic wall structure.
Non autoclaved lightweight aerated concrete mix design:
- Portland cement 40 - 60 %
- Calcium carbonate (limestone) 40 - 60 %
- Sodium salt of naphthalene sulfonate polymerized 1%
- Limestone powder (particles up to 0.05 mm)
- Aluminum powder with water coverage 15 000 cm2/g and more.
Dry mix formula:
50% cement (by weight) + 50% limestone powder (by weight). I mean for 1 kg of dry mix you need 500 g cement and 500 g limestone powder
Mixture formula for 600 kg/m3 density:
1 kg of dry mix 0.65 liters of water 1 g of aluminum powder for 100 kg of dry mix you will need 65 liters of water and 100 g of aluminum powder
How to mix it:
1. Add water in the bucket
2. Add dry mix in the water and mix it for a couple of minutes
3. Add aluminum powder and mix it 1 - 2 minutes.
facing trouble with aluminum powder choosing request for support by firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Pour it in the mold

Dry mix bulk density is 1270 kg/m3. To produce densities from 500 kg/m3 up to 1200 kg/m3 different quantities of water and additives required.
The most applicable density for the dry wall partition system with lightweight concrete infill is 500 - 600 kg/m3
For such density Pioner lightweight concrete has such main characteristics as:
thermal conductivity 0,1359 W/(m*k)
compressive strength 2,1 - 2,8 MPA or 21 - 28 kg/cm2
fire resistance rating for 100 mm thickness is 4 hours.
acoustic insulation for 100 mm thickness is 45 db.
